Hi all! It's been a long time since I posted (again) but over the past few weeks I've run across a few Kinnikuman things that I thought I'd post. I was out shopping in Kobe and saw this gachapon machine outside of a grocery store:
For only ~$1 each, I figured I'd give it a shot. There are 8 different characters, but I only managed to get 7 from the 12 or so that I bought...and The one I'm missing is Kid Muscle
Then I went to a HobbyOff not too far from that store and found this Ramen Man game:
I bought it, but haven't even opened the box yet to see if I'll be able to play. It looks like there's a lot of Japanese, but it was a good price and I couldn't leave it behind. At the same HobbyOff, they had these guys:
I didn't buy any then, but I'm tempted to see if they're still there the next time I'm in Kobe. At a different hobby / toy store in Kobe they had several packs of Kinkeshi for about ~$5 / 5 characters. I didn't have a lot of money left, but I couldn't pass up the red Spinning Head Ashuraman
I'm assuming it's a recent reproduction, but still fun to have in my collection!
Anyway, not too much but it was fun to run across this stuff so I thought I'd share. Have a nice day!
